The best person to talk to is your county clerk. They typically know just about everything about the ordinances. Don't be fooled by a residential zoning since that often has absolutely nothing to do with what you can do with your land. Around here in NC, all farm land is zoned residential and you can have as many farm animals as you want regardless of the size of your property as long as they are not abused, neglected, or kept in an unhealthy fashion.
Turns out since I have So many amish neiborghs buying up residential property they passed a new zoining law saying you can't put any kind of structure any closer then 50 feet to you property line.Man I hate to be told know.And since I have a creek running throught the middle Im screwed! Oh well thanks for the replies.
Public boarding stables are the norm for most horse owners.
You pay someone else to house your horse. Depending on the boarding arrangement, that could run anywhere from pasture board with nothing but water provided, to full stall board with feed and hay included, as well as use of all the facilities.
You live in Lancaster county, PA. Surely with the number of horses in your area, there are boarding stables.
